JustWork emerged from the life and ministry of Grandview Calvary Baptist Church in the Grandview-Woodlands neighbourhood of Vancouver, BC. Pastoral staff of the congregation encouraged the development of JustWork as a way to offer assistance and hope to those in the faith community and the neighbourhood who were struggling to find work. JustWork officially began in February 2004, and since 2005 we have focused most of our time and energy on the development of social enterprises. We have sensed a particular call to assist those in our midst facing the most daunting challenges to finding work, and social enterprises seem to be the best tool available to us for this task.
JustWork currently operates three social enterprise projects in pottery, catering, and renovations.
JustWork seeks to develop and support social enterprises because individuals need something more than what is offered by typical employment programs.
